That would mean the magnetron tube inside the unit is burned out. You woul dhave to take it apart to replace that part. They range from 125-200 dollars for the part on average. It is a job to do, but it is fixable if you want to invest in the part and do the job. A company will charge about 350-400 for that job. If you have the complete model number I can link you the part.

All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you. Also rating now does not close the question out and you can come back anytime for FREE right here to me......Happy Holidays!
